The BVB Veterans XI suffered a disappointment on Sunday as coach Günter Kutowski's side were beaten 6-3 by a high-calibre Siegerland selection in Wilsndorf.

The home team, led by former Cologne player Patrick Helmes, got the better of the Black & Yellows, whose goals were scored by Marc Kruska, Vincenco Pichierri and Andreas Bath. There was a silver lining to the defeat, however: a significant sum will be donated to the project for Brazilian street children.
